The big wigs are drooling over development of this land, and have been since I was told that same thing at the 2005 Asarco Air Permit hearing. They are ignoring the 10/2006 Front Page NY Times story that we got from the EPA US DOJ 1998 confidential for settlement purposes only document (posted on my blog http://epgtlo.blogspot.com/) that tells us how poisonous that place is. Asarco was acting as an US Dept of Energy official high level radioactive waste disposal contractor (and where would a mining/smelting company get rid of HLRW stuff??) and so were two other companies listed in that secret 73 page document. It is appalling that a former mayor, mayor Cook and others were more concerned about salivating over the land (they think that 3 to 5 feet "infill" will make it clean for children or workers -- have they heard about underground arroyos there, and slag off-gassing and are they going to outlaw trees and other very deep rooted landscaping?) than they were about the children being exposed in Sunset Heights and Juarez. SHAME on these people. They have children. Why don't they seem to care about children?? Is MONEY more important to all of them -- the Love of Money -- than public health and safety? And by the way, we don't even have a City Health Dept. now. Gone for 3 years.... appalling just appalling.
